What God promises, He does, but why can’t we do the conditions He has set? Even when He has drawn the picture of our beautiful future, why can’t we keep the conditions? Why can’t we perceive the blessed future of our generations along with God? http://bib.ly/1Kings.11.9-13
Lord, we plan and develop schemes to conquer obstacles in the natural world, but often we fail to overcome hindrances in us in the spiritual realm which actually channel Your blessings for our future.
Lord, forgive us as we use our resources to overcome hindrances in our natural world towards a blessed future but we forget to love You, the One who has already masterminded a beautiful picture of our future.
Do great achievements for God guarantee our continual walk with God? Do we value tangible things we do for God more than our walk before Him with integrity of heart? What happens when we miss the latter and continue to create tangible things for God? http://bib.ly/1Kings.9.1-9
Lord, generally people appreciate what they can see and touch but may we value times when You meet us daily so that we could see Your beauty.
Lord, we cherish our time with You when we are recharged to walk before You with integrity of heart more than any great monuments we could build for Your name.
What could we ask other than wisdom to help us to walk uprightly before God? What is that stops us from walking in the ways of the Lord or obeying God? Will one or a few costly sacrifice and offering help us for our daily renewal? I Kgs 3
Lord, none of Your gifts can replace our need for You,-Your presence, and Your power in our lives, so more than any gift we seek You as our reward.
Lord, we realize that no gift is a substitute for your presence, power, and purpose in our lives to direct our paths to walk uprightly before You and obey You.
What kind of emotions arise in us as we see talented people to support our interest? Will we delight in them or will we delight in the Lord? Whose hand brings protection and whose hand brings calamity? 2 Sam 23:23-24:17
Lord, we acknowledge that talented people among us are placed among us for Your credit, forgive us if we ever tend to see them for our credit.
Lord, let our hearts never delight in the talented people among us because it is You who gave them to us and You who direct our ways to success.
